Queen Elizabeth’s favourite grandchild – Lady Louise Windsor


Queen Elizabeth’s favourite grandchild – Lady Louise Windsor


Move aside, Prince Harry and Prince William: Lady Louise Windsor, 17, is the Queen’s favorite grandchild.

Lady Louise Windsor, the oldest child of Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, is the Queen’s favorite grandchild, according to a royal insider.

Queen Elizabeth’s youngest granddaughter, Lady Louise, is the 15th in line to the throne. As a result, her odds of ever ruling England appear…slim.

“The Queen loves the fact that Louise and James relish their time at Balmoral, and she has become particularly close to Louise, who seems to have become her favourite grandchild, closely followed by James,” a royal source recently told The Sun.

“Louise also endeared herself to everyone by looking after William and Kate’s children when they were up here.

“Louise loves drawing and sketching and was very patiently trying to get Charlotte to do pictures of rabbits and deer.”


“Because of her obvious artistic skill, the Queen allowed Louise to look through some of the collection of Queen Victoria’s Highlands sketches which are kept at Balmoral but are rarely dug out these days,” they added.

Louise’s 11-year-old brother James, Viscount Severn, is also a member of the Wessex family.

Louise spent quality time with the Queen at Balmoral, and was selected to accompany the Sovereign on a gentle horse ride in the hills above the castle for three days in a row.

Her parents actually did not want their children to grow up to be princesses and queens, and they secured the Queen’s permission to opt out, according to The Express.

The term “HRH” stands for “Her/His Royal Highness,” and while Edward and Sophie’s children will be able to use it once they turn 18, it’s unlikely they will. According to Sophie, who spoke to the Sunday Times.

On November 8, 2003, Lady Louise was born prematurely. Sophie of Wessex, her mum, was rushed to the hospital and gave birth one month early. Since Prince Edward was in Mauritius at the time, he was unable to attend the birth.

Lady Louise was born with conditions such as placental abruption and esotropia, an eye disease, as a result of her early birth.

Lady Louise had her first operation at the age of 18 months, but it was ineffective, so she had a second procedure in 2014 to correct her vision. Sophie of Wessex was encouraged to campaign for eye charity after having a child with a vision problem. She is also a part of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness’s (IAPB) ambassadorial team.

“Premature babies can often have squints because the eyes are the last thing in the baby package to really be finalized,” Countess Sophie said of her daughter’s eye disorder to The Sunday Express. “Her squint was quite profound when she was tiny and it takes time to correct it. You’ve got to make sure one eye doesn’t become more dominant than the other but she’s fine now—her eyesight is perfect,” she added.
